A New Level of Quality and Comfort in Chile

YAN KEE WAY is a great starting and ending point for any expedition to Chile and is a fascinating facility unto itself. Volcan Osorno, considered one of the most beautiful volcanic cones in the world, dominates the horizon in front of the lodge. The compound was carefully constructed over a five-year period, with great attention to detail. Exposed, sandblasted post and beam construction throughout highlights beautiful local woods, black lava encrustations and old-world style craftsmanship


Lodging is comprised of private chalets, bungalows and hotel style rooms. The 1,400 square foot chalets and bungalows are designed to accommodate groups of various sizes. Each building was carefully designed and constructed from beautiful local woods, in a style appreciative of local architecture yet incorporating many modern features, including central heating and details such as plush towels, bathrobes and luxurious goose down comforters, which are sure to please your family and friends.

Fine dining and cuisine

The Yan Kee Way lodge features the famed Latitude 42 Restaurant with excellent international cuisine. The 1,500 square foot kitchen was designed and constructed in the United States, then disassembled, containerized and shipped to Chile. It is recognized as the best kitchen facility in the Patagonia region, perhaps the whole of Chile. The wine cellar at Yan Kee Way is also widely regarded as one of the very best in Chile.

Attention to detail in Chilean Patagonia

Our Founder personally travelled throughout Mexico and South America hand selecting artwork and decorations. Most of the furnishings were custom designed and crafted in Chile and Argentina. Artwork found throughout the lodge, chalets and bungalows, creates a unique and exceptionally comfortable atmosphere. There are numerous pieces of original art on the grounds that were created by Chilean artists. The most recent art project was the hand carving of a tree, 16 meters high and 6 meters wide at the top. The sculptor has won various international awards and blue ribbons for his carvings.

Relax and unwind

There are Numerous cozy spaces throughout the compound, in which to relax and socialize. For those who wish to stay abreast of the current global events, you have in-room satellite television, direct dial international and local telephone service, wake-up call service, fax service, hot spot internet service and email right in our reception area.

In the midst of lush trees and native vegetation, opening your window allows you to experience the fragrant clean air and the seemingly orchestrated sounds of birds. You will gain a new appreciation of the night sky when you see the incredible number of celestial objects, not to mention two galaxies and the Southern Cross, which are not visible from much of the Northern Hemisphere.

More than fishing

Once you get settled in, you may wonder why you would even want to venture off the grounds. If you can drag yourself away, there are plenty of activities that await you: fishing, horseback riding, rafting, biking, trekking, boating, sightseeing and shopping, to name just a few.

You will quickly make yourself at home at Yan Kee Way. As the hour to departarrives, most don’t wish to leave. When you do actually depart, thoughts of your return will be foremost on your mind.
